Profile

Hello and welcome to my social page! I go by several aliases. For here, it is it Spikybum Jolteon but I do still go by my original name, Eclipsis. I have been with DeviantArt since July, 2004.

I am a graduate of a community college with an Associate’s in Computer Programming. I am currently taking classes towards a Bachelor’s in Business Administration: Computer Management. My graduation date will hopefully be by the end of Fall, 2015.

I develop the Minecraft modification, PokemonMD: Disciples of Corruption, which adds various hostile creatures themed after Pokemon usually combined with another theme from another game, movie, book, ect. I justify working on the mod as something to put on a resume/portfolio.

My personal idol is Markus Persson, or Notch, the developer of Minecraft. I appreciate his personal history and efforts it took for him to arrive at creating the game. Historic idols include General Robert E. Lee, Theodore Roosevelt, and Albert Einstein. I also learn much from my best friend, MythTrainerInfinity.

As an artist, my primary media are graphite and colored pencils. I also have skill with vector and text based pictures.

So until next time, this is Spikybum Jolteon,
~signing out.

How long have you been on DeviantArt?
I've been on DeviantArt for a long time. My original first account was Eclipsis and it says its been over 11 years since I made the account. This account was made because the Eclipsis account was mostly known for semi realism fanart and I wanted a place to try out cartoony themes.

Eventually this account became my main account after a hacker ravaged the Eclipsis account. DA staff restored the account submissions but I was so depressed that all the organization I had for the account was ruined, I never really felt like repairing the account. Now this account serves as my main social account on DeviantArt.

My other account is for my original art, EclipsisStudios. I have no real motive to create original art anymore, so that account has not been used in a very long time.

What does your username mean?
Eclipsis represented a character when I joined DeviantArt who was a stage three evolution to Umbreon (they all followed the "-sis" format). Eventually I added more original features and detached him from his Pokemon heritage. Now he has his own science fiction story.

FuzzyAcornIndustries came from a random conversation in a college class. The guy said he had an e-mail name called "FuzzyAcorn." So I took the idea and added "Industries" on the end because I thought I was going to start making Flash animations like a production account rather than "Studios" for a basic art account. That was my logic at the time. Doubt it makes sense now.

Spikybum Jolteon is a reference to my first "pokesona," Dumbass Leafeon, because of the butt reference in the name. Dumbass Leafeon was a joke on a now lost comic from someone who inspired me to try and make cartoonish art. "Spikybum Jolteon" was first created as my gamer alias name, starting with League of Legends.

Describe yourself in three words.
Naively honest guy

Are you left or right handed?
Left handed in writing and art but technically ambidextrous.

What was your first deviation?
Where it all began...
The Beginning of It All... by Eclipsis
...a product of obsession to want to learn how to draw after seeing this on a random internet search...
Umbreon and Espeon by hibbary
...this is why I am on DeviantArt and an artist at all.

What is your favourite type of art to create?
At the end of the day, I still prefer Prismacolor pencils after all these years and after all these new things I've learned like vectors and programming.

If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Music mixing or composition. Not necessarily playing an instrument but rather the ability to make video game remixes. Music is more important to me than any other thing in life. There is almost never a moment you will see me without my iPod on me.

What was your first favourite?
For Eclipsis, it was obviously:
Umbreon and Espeon by hibbary

For FuzzyAcornIndustries, those pictures were deleted by the artist so I actually can't show them.

What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Traditional art; even high quality digital art I don't always favorite that much because I am bias to traditional art.

Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
:iconhibbary:, who else would it be? Hehehe. Such a British style question.

If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
This was a hard choice to make, but I would have to say either my good friends StampyDragon or MythTrainerInfinity.

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
One that comes to mind is Alef-GP who encourages me daily to draw. I don't always do it but I probably do it more than I would otherwise.

Another is MythTrainerInfinity for encouraging me to get into competitive gaming. I got into League of Legends on my own over an obsession with the character, Ahri. I am not very good and sit close to the bottom of the skill level despite being with it for over three years. Only in the last few months have I got serious with learning how to play it. Infinity encouraged getting better at it. Considering he is one of the best Pokemon and Super Smash Bros. players in the world, that says a lot. And I am not exaggerating his status at all.

What are your preferred tools to create art?
~Prismacolor pencils for traditional art
~Adobe Illustrator CS5 for vector art

What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
At home at my desk with my laptop and desktop along with two TV fold up tables. It's where all the "magic" happens, include my Minecraft modification, PokemonMD: Disciples of Corruption.

What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
It's only happened twice as I have been told to my face, but in a sense, it passes on hibbary's legacy to me. Being told that I was the reason the person started to learn how to draw.

I haven't had the time, but i finally found your DA user.

It's about time you updated Disciples of Corruption mod to 1.7.10, now ALL my fav mods (except 2 mods) are at 1.7.10!

Heheh, thanks. Apparently I did not have to really change anything other than a single line of code to some unreleased content. I have absolutely never had an update that easy since I started modding in 1.4.7. ^^

Apparently they are changing how tamable's work slightly. (heheh, hint hint)

From the current version, there are 0 tamables.
I assume that it is still a WIP.

Yah, it is a WIP. That is why it was turned off. Updating and releasing 1.7.10 was a bit spontaneous once I learned just how simple the update was going to be to that version. I did not formally remove all the new stuff from the code. I just simply turned it off.
